F+S at Gate4SPICE Event "Rhetorik in ASPICE Assessments"

The "Rhetoric in ASPICE Assessments" is a topic that should not be underestimated, it can significantly influence the duration and success of assessments. Therefore, we followed the invitation of Achim Hönow and Bhaskar Vanamali to the Köschingen location of CARIAD SE on 22.09.2022 to work on and discuss this topic. Together with about 25 Provisional, Competent and Principal Assessors we worked out how assessors can express ASPICE requirements rhetorically well, so that assessors, even without ASPICE knowledge, can fully understand questions and technical issues. In addition to technical and methodological knowledge, the soft skills of our assessors are particularly in demand. During the breaks there was also enough time for professional exchange and networking. The event was generally well received and has enriched our wealth of experience.

After Corona-compliant weeks in the mobile office at the beginning of the year and the subsequent summer vacations, the need for exchange was evident. The next event is already in planning...

Changes in the F+S management

André Zeh, long-time managing director and shareholder of F+S GmbH, has resigned from his position as managing director for personal reasons as of 28.02.2022.

We regret this decision very much. Mr. Zeh has accompanied the development of F+S GmbH for many years: He joined the company already in 2004 and has significantly developed F+S GmbH in his role as managing director in the team since 2011.

In order to ensure stability and continuity in the company, Mr. Josef Horstkötter was appointed as interim managing director alongside Mr. Michael Salzer. He had already managed the company for 13 years until summer 2021. Thus, F+S GmbH considers itself well prepared for the now following foreseeable steps into the future.
